Wearing these J Brand “Camouflage Leggings” is my AHA! moment. I get it, I now really understand why people are so loyal to this brand. I was so excited when I received these as a 16th birthday gift from Beth at J Brand, one of the the nicest and sharpest PR people I have come across (and I’m not just saying that because she sent me jeans). I met the J Brand team last September when I covered Fashion Night Out in Los Angeles and we’ve stayed in touch ever since. As a gift they were never intended to be reviewed, but I really wanted to tell the world how amazing they are because I am o.b.s.e.s.s.e.d. with these leggings.
These are J Brand’s skinny four pocket legging with a “wax” finish (which doesn’t feel waxy at all). They have a sheen to them which is so amazing (and almost looks like leather) that I can’t go anywhere without people asking who made them. Super lightweight and stretchy (98% cotton 2% lycra) they are really soft on the inside with faux pockets (that I keep trying to put my hands in) and have an 8″ rise. The inseam is perfect to wear with heels, flip-flops, boots or high-tops (pretty much any shoe!). Bonus marks for getting the length of the jean just right, it’s always a bummer when they are too long or too short. I love the color of the camouflage, it’s a dark pattern of grey and olive and truly stands out! I will issue one caveat, it has been blazing hot here and when the sun blasts on these leggings they get really hot (not to say this doesn’t happen with everything when its 100 degrees) to resolve this issue I choose shade rather than a different outfit.
I truly love these leggings, I can’t say it enough. I’ve worn them so many times in the last month and as I navigate what to wear on the first day of school these continue to make it to poll position. J Brand may be known for their understated denim line, without a lot of decoration and branding but I think this more adventurous legging definitely has its place in their collection. Known for fantastic designer collaborations J Brand is definitely one of denim’s major players and if they contine hitting the consumer with new styles like this they are going to be there for some time to come. It also helps that pop icons of the moment Rihanna and Katy Perry were both spotted wearing these “Camouflage Leggings”. So this is my thank you letter to Beth and J Brand for delivering to my doorstep the most spectacular leggings of the season, I promise to wear them fashionably!
The J Brand “Camouflage Leggings” reviewed here are available online for $175.00.
